Abstract:

The low earth orbit (LEO) satellite network has been a valuable architecture due to its characteristics of wide coverage and low transmission delay. Utilizing LEO satellites as edge computing nodes to provide real-time services for access terminals will be the indispensable paradigm of integrated space-air-ground network. However, it is not easy to design resource management strategies in edge computing satellite (ECS) network, considering different accessing planes and resource requirements of terminals. Moreover, a comprehensive analysis of the network topology, relative motion, and available resources is required to establish ECS collaborative networks. This speech discuss problems above. The dynamic resource allocation architecture and advanced K-means algorithm in ECSs are proposed. Then, the extended graph model and breadth-first-search-based spanning tree algorithm are utilized to guide the inter-satellite link construction. As a result, the ECS collaborative network is established with fine-grained resource management. We desire a service-oriented network access for users whenever and wherever they are.

Bang-Tao Zhou

Title: Optimization method of flow table in SDN network

Bio:

Bang-Tao Zhou was born in Guizhou Province. He is a research member of Key Laboratory of Intelligent Sensing and Collaborative Control of Aircraft Swarm. His main research interest is SDN network and its flow table optimization.

Abstract:

In traditional network equipment, data forwarding and control functions are tightly coupled, and network flexibility is poor. As a new model in the computer network industry, SDN network changes the existing distributed architecture and makes it a centralized Architecture, SDN technology is widely used in data center networks. Existing SDN switches store the flow table in a ternary content-addressable memory (TCAM), but the number of storage items is limited and needs to be quickly updated to cope with a large number of different flows in the data center network. We studied the method of optimizing the flow table timeout mechanism. By dynamically assigning timeout values for different flows, it is possible to reasonably match different flows in the network. Experimental results show that our optimization method significantly reduces the load of the controller, speeds up the update of the flow table, and avoids the overflow of the flow table.

Abstract:

With the rapid development of Internet technology, traffic identification technology emerges as the times require. How to identify all kinds of traffic has become the focus of people’s attention. According to the classification of network traffic behavior types, a variety of network traffic classification and identification technologies are proposed, which can be roughly divided into port based traffic identification technology, feature-based network flow identification technology and machine learning based network flow identification technology. However, with the rapid growth of the amount of data, it is more and more difficult to identify the traffic. How to filter the characteristics becomes the problem to be solved in this paper. For feature selection, many researchers proposed filtering feature selection and encapsulation feature selection. Aiming at the advantages and disadvantages of the two methods, this paper combines the two methods, gives the combination method of filtering and encapsulation, and selects the decision tree as the classifier, which further improves the classification performance of features. Experimental results show that the combination of filtering and encapsulation based on decision tree classifier can achieve better classification performance.

Abstract:

With the arrival of Internet of Things, the Internet of Vehicles is also developing rapidly. However, the coverage rate of ground network in China is low at present, and the construction of ground network in remote areas such as the central and western regions is difficult and expensive, so LEO satellite coverage can be used to access the network. Additionally, for urban areas, the traffic situation is sudden, the load pressure of the ground network is too high in this period, so the mobile network node (ex. satellites, uavs) is needed for communication assistance. This paper introduces a method of IoV path planning based on LEO constellation satellite. The satellite first conducts global situational awareness, and the acquired data is transferred to the control center for global path planning service. The control center makes the initial route and then obtains the optimal path according to Dijkstra algorithm and the Ant Colony Optimization (DiAC). It makes up for the defects of ground communication. Simulation results show that the vehicle network path planning based on STK+MATLAB designed in this paper is feasible and can relieve the ground traffic pressure and network load pressure.

Bio:

His main research interests include Space-Air-Ground integrated network.

Abstract:

With the development of communication technology, the integration of space and space information network has become a research hotspot. This network can be used for data transmission and sharing on the ground, in the air and in outer space, which can greatly enhance the coverage and speed of the network. However, the air space integration information network is composed of a large number of mobile nodes, which makes it highly dynamic. Based on the time-varying graph, this paper proposes a dynamic networking method to connect the aircraft in the atmosphere to the space-based satellite network, which transforms the problem into the shortest path solution at a certain time and avoids a lot of calculation. At the same time, according to the established scene, the joint simulation platform is built. And the simulation architecture with MATLAB as the core and STK and NS-3 as the auxiliary is completed. On this platform, the simulation test of air space integration information network can be carried out. Through the test of the algorithm on the built simulation platform, the results show that this networking method has good performance in the dynamic network networking.
